Holy Spirit Parish Weekly Newsletter

We once again start the week off with a big Marian day, and then get a second, more somber one on Thursday.

Here is your weekly update for what's going on in the parish.

Holy Name of the Blessed Virgin Mary

Some Thoughts for Reflection

Did God Have a Wife?

To understand the situation, we need to understand how the Israelite religion developed. As a nation, Israel was descended from the patriarch Abraham, who came from "Ur of the Chaldees" (Gen. 12:28)-meaning he was from Mesopotamia, or modern Iraq. As a native of Mesopotamia, Abraham was raised in the religion of the area, which centered on various Eastern deities.

What Forgiveness Is - and Isn't
Can a Robot Have A Soul?

Can AI have a Soul?

We are building our computers smarter and smarter.

They can even trick humans.

Could they one day have souls?

Sin Makes You Stupid

The traditional thought is that sin not only makes us weak, but stupid. Sin blunts conscience progressively over time-that is, diminishes our grasp of moral reality, impairing our ability to reason to proper moral conclusions. Consequently, sin can (and often does) lead to greater sin, along with the failure to realize not just that we are sinning, but also how awful our sinning has become.

"The love of husband and wife is the force that welds society together. Men will take up arms and even sacrifice their lives for the sake of this love….when harmony prevails, the children are raised well, the household is kept in order, and neighbors, friends, and relatives praise the result. Great benefits, both of families and states, are thus produced. When it is otherwise, however, everything is thrown into confusion and turned upside-down."

St. John Chrysostom
